The leaders of many small and medium-sized business leaders struggle with the same usual questions. How to keep a small or mid-size business streamlined and running smoothly, no matter what is thrown at you. How to keep track of scattered data across multiple departmental systems. How to align and automate management processes with a growing and changing business. And how to provide a great personalized service whilst moving at pace and at scale.

The answer to these questions exists in the cloud. And Microsoft Dynamics 365 can help you and your Business. 

A clear view from the top

Emerging cloud-based solutions like Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 Business Central provide business leaders with an end to end, streamlined and comprehensive view of their entire organization.  

Enabling solutions like this allows every system a business deploys to interlink, to update in real time, and to be readily available immediately – wherever a business leader happens to be.  

A real time view, at a glance

Financials, sales, customer service, operations – everything a business needs are accessible from one digital location. And supporting machine technology ensures each system is automated, capable of responding to each other and working together in one ecosystem.  

Cloud-based management solutions such as Dynamics 365 Business Central enriched with CRM and the Power Platform capabilities allow business leaders to keep sight of their businesses’ big picture easily and continually – a vantage point that is even more important right now, considering the turbulence many businesses have faced this year. 

Helping you make the first step to the cloud

For Microsoft users, a simple pathway to this transformative innovative technology is to renew your license to the next evolution of Dynamics NAV, the new cloud-based business management solution Dynamics 365 Business Central. 

Helping you make better decisions

With a businesses’ entire data in one place and analytics built in, business leaders can make more informed decisions that boost productivity and efficiency, bring employees closer together in remote working conditions, and deliver fast, agile, and personalized customer service.  

How the solution helped one successful startup 

For Thomas Johansson, CEO of Swedish sports drink startup iQ Fuel, the agility and speed of his customer service operation is critical to his business’ success. Dynamics 365 Business Central has proved invaluable in realizing the potential of his startup.

“We needed to be able to connect our storage facilities with our sales team – both with us in the office, and in the field,” Johansson says. “Implementing Dynamics 365 Business Central means we all have secure access to real-time data from across our whole company. We now have the full overview of our business. We can all work together and see everything that everybody is doing – day by day, hour by hour. And we have control over it at every moment we need it.” 

How the solution helped an established mid-size business

For Dutch manufacturer Multideur, business growth was held back by a legacy operation relying on manual, paperwork-driven processes. After moving all of its management systems to the cloud using Microsoft services, Multideur has doubled its employee headcount in a few short years.

Maarten Zijlstra, Managing Director of Multideur, says he is now able to make faster decisions, plan longer-term growth projects and look to adopt more technological solutions – thanks to his new AI-supported 360-degree overview of Multideur. 

“We have all our data together in Business Central,” says Zijlstra. “In our old systems, it was all scattered and took us a long time to find. Our clients, especially the bigger companies, now have an increased confidence is us.” 

Ready to move to Dynamics 365 Business Central?
